Doing some much needed cleansing…Over a decade’s worth of unsold, limited-edition silkscreen prints and posters in dumpster. Thanks and appreciation to all who have purchased my work. It’s now amongst the rarest stuff you own.

Some know me as “The Lucky Bunny Guy,” others as Rich de Simone. When doing this interview, I was asked what advice I’d give to aspiring artists. I said, “take a business class.” If I were to add anything else, I’d suggest taking up meditation very seriously. In future posts I’ll go into greater detail about establishing a meditation practice. For years I thought meditation was some new age hippy thing and have since learned otherwise. The benefits of mediating are immeasurable and makes establishing the habit a no-brainer.
